have a real stake in making the government work. a far bigger question, will the war on the right help the country unite and avoid the fiscal cliff or will it give the right a chance to bring the house down. with me is ron reagan and dana milbank of the "washington post." before we talk about the gop split, we should republicans in the white house have exchanged new proposal tsds today. and president obama and boehner have spoken at this time. quote, we sent the white house a counteroffer that would achieve reform to solve our looming debt crisis and create more jobs. that's all we know. dana milbank, they say it's good. they said it will solve our problems. they won't say what it is. explain. >> well, look, we're still in the fairly early stage of posturing here, and nobody can strike a deal until they get closer to it, until their feet are to the fire. >> when do you say the fire begins? >> nobody can make any prediction for sure -- >> try. >> they could hammer this out in three hours if they really wanted to. >> that's right. >> but if they don't wait until the very end of december

that to say the government will not pay its debts and hold it up for something else is bad substance, and bad politics. i don't think they'll prevail on that. if they want to say, we won't raise the debt ceiling unless you cut medicare, make our day. >> chris: meaning, go ahead and default the country? >> no, make or day, meaning, that position is untenable politically and it will not last. you will not be able to hold it. >> chris: a little time left and i want to go to a couple of other subjects. senator schumer on the first day of the next congress in january, will democrats change the rules on filibusters by a simple majority, rather than the 2/3 majority you generally need, to change rules in the senate? >> okay. everyone knows the senate is broken and needs fixing. i think bob corker would say that, we have had discussions. we're friends. most democrats -- almost all democrats and all republicans believe that and i think it is also true that our preference would be to do this by 2/3 in a bipartisan way. there are all kinds of discussions going on with all kinds of groups, to try and com

. the government felt in its infinite wisdom that -- >> you think it's a radical tax increase? >> i think so, yeah. i think you'll notice it in your paycheck for certain. >> that's absolutely for sure. >> your first check, second paycheck, then you get the chaos that bowles mentioned. and the chaos is, wow, i have much less to spend. i didn't know this was coming. alternative minimum tax being the silent killer who really understands how much more they have to pay, check at the end of the year. do the math. >> we saw it in the consumer sentiment numbers, and what it will be when the increases actually go through. most of that decline in sentiment that we saw on friday was from households earning more than $75,000. a higher income in this survey, households felt it the most, even though it's not here technically. >> one of the more interesting conversations over the weekend was bob corker saying, let's just go ahead, concede to the tax argument, which would flip the entire spotlight onto entitlements, which is what republicans have been trying to get the discussion to be about over the last couple

of these people are public servants and working for the united states government and celebrate that. >> did you got that out of my special then i hope you don't watch it. >> ben stein, all kidding aside, i just wonder, say what you will about what happened to our space program we used to own it and hitch a ride with the russians to still be a part of it. we're trapped in our own debt and that seems to limit our options and even our thinking about how we get out of messes. >> it was a heart breaking situation, and by the way, to go back to real life for a second, i go to the army medical center, we used to be called walter reed and now down in bethesda and quite often seeing amazing heroes with their limbs blown off and making a life with themselves and their families and plenty of heroes, and teachers and so forth, and you're right out of washington we've allowed our government to create a lead weight of debt that brings us down, down, down, instead of great things and turned over the rush shins and chinese and surrendered our enormous lead in the space program because of other indebtedness. it

leaders pocketing off of the workers and the undue influence and the rising cost of government. this is recognition that we have to get control over out-of-control governments. i think you were more accurate the first time. i idea here is that you have a free rider problem. when you have folks that are not paying union dues. kate's comment is right. it is a union breaking measure. some people see the unions as a free rider. picking the pockets of non union employees on union work sites. i think you should tell the president and vice president don't pick the american pockets so much. you know, i think republicans at the end of the day want to make a strategic move to extend the middle class tax cuts. but i think these huge revenue numbers which pick taxpayer pockets. don't go so far in that. taxpayers have limits. >> larry, i thought your position in that interview was right. i was thinking i'm glad larry is here in town comes down to my town to talk about economic growth. and we can have all kinds of arguments that you and i have had for years. but your position was right. we h

. it saves money. the keizer family foundation estimates that when it's all said and done, the government could save $5.7 billion. but those 65 and 66-year-olds don't disappear. they are still going to be here and get sick sometimes which means the savings we'd see by kicking them off they pop back up elsewhere in the economy. it's not pure savings, it's a cost shift. you're going to see increased costs for seniors who will have to find another health insurer since it uses power to pay less by quite a bit. the seniors turning to private insurance will have to pay more from the same coverage. 3.7 billion more in the first year of the policy. for those who are eligible for medicaid, will move to the states, we think. then there are the employers. many of the ineligible will turn to their employers. that will increase the health care costs of companies by $5.4 billion. some of the seniors will turn to the affordable care act in the insurance exchanges. those left in medicare will pay a higher premium because the average premiums go up for those older and sicker. that will cost $2.5 billion.
